Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

One of the promising launches of the Japan based multinatinal Canon is the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS. The camera boasts of a stylish design and elegant yet conventional layout with a user friendly interface. This superzoom camera has a pop up flash and 14.1 megapixel sensor. With advanced technologies and yet customizable controls, this new Canon product uses a DIGIC 4 image processor to deliver the perfect pictures. Available in unique colors of black, purple and golden, this camera stands out amongst the other point and shoot cameras. The 28mm wideangle lens and powerful 14x zoom allows the best image capture. The image stabilizer compensates for camera shake and gives images with no blur at all. With a 3 inch wide PureColor II LCD, this camera gives a clear playback and allows in camera editing and processing of the images. The aspect ratio of 16:9 boasts to be perfect for HD video recording. The smart auto with the face detection technology recognizes known subjects and focuses on them automatically. There is also the new smart flash exposure control which controls flash levels according to shooting conditions and give just the perfect amount of light required.  The much hyped new motion detection technology monitors camera shake, brightness and subject movement and also set optimum shutter speed and ISO level which is a maximum of 1600 in this camera.

The Canon PowerShoot SX210 IS boasts of many different shooting modes like portrait, landscape, night, snow, pet etc to choose from and decide the most suitable mode according to need. There is also the automatic mode for beginners. A special mode is the smart shutter which triggers the shot by either winking, smiling, or when an extra face enters the frame. Another advanced feature is seen during playback which is the I contrast which optimizes the dynamic range and contrast for a scene thus retaining detail in shadows and preventing overexposure of highlights.

Design and Build Quality

The stylish Canon PowerShoot SX210 IS has  a pop up flash in a metallic body measuring 105.8mm x 59.3mm x 31.9mm and weighing 215 grams. The thickened right hand side acts as a hand grip and the front which has a 14x optical zoom lens is completely flat. The camera has a joystick like zoom lever and a shutter button on the top right corner. There is a dedicated button for video recording which is flaunted alongside by the playback button. The rear of the camera has a flat control wheel which comes with a better grip to adjust different setting. The function of different positions of the wheel is indicated on the LCD itself and it lacks any labeling which seems quite inconvenient at times. The left, down and right adjust the focusing distance, self-timer and flash settings respectively. The camera comes in unique colors of black, golden and purple giving an all new range of options to the stylish shutterbugs. 

Focus and Face Detection

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS contains two main autofocus systems: 9-area AiAF and Face Detection. When the camera's set to any of its Auto modes, it'll seamlessly switch between them, selecting Face Detection if a human subject is spotted, otherwise defaulting to the main 9-area system. This easily ensures you never have to worry about manually selecting Face Detection – but this only applies only if you're in one of the fully automatic, foolproof shooting modes. Turn the mode dial to Program, Manual, Aperture or Shutter Priority and the AF options become much more basic. The 9-area system is replaced by a single AF area locked in the middle of the screen. You can change it for a smaller area, but you can't move it, or choose the 9-area system employed in the Auto modes.

Lens and Image Stabilization

The lens in the Canon PowerShoot SX210 IS is made by incorporating 12 elements into 10 groups including 1 UD and 2 aspherical UA lenses. The focal length of the 14x optical zoom power lens is 5.0mm – 70.0 mm for a 35 mm equivalent of  28mm – 392 mm. The high power lens with a f number of f/3.1 – f/5.9 gives proper detailing to the the images. The camera has lens shift type of image stabilization to prevent blur while dynamic image stabilization helps in covering camera shake and disturbance during movie recording. 

Screen and Menus

Canon PowerShot SX210 is well equipped with a 3 inch wide screen, unlike the traditional cameras it features a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is definitely an interesting choice for filiming HD movies, a poisitive is that when connected to a Laptop or a TV, 16:9 is the default ratio though normal photos on a camera at the best quality setting will occupy a smaller portion in the middle of the screen, with thick black bars running down either side. Widescreen movies on canon are displayed with a significant increase in size compared to the traditional 4:3 ratio. Another feature provided is the ability to choose to take stills in a cropped 16:9 mode, which may have a lower vertical resolution, but will fill the screen, and of course this mode will also be the perfect fit for slideshows on widescreen TVs.

Battery

What powers Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is NB-5L Lithium Ion pack which also exists in its predecessor, claims made by CIPA show that the estimate life is 280 shots under CIPA conditions. Change these with NiMH cells and you may get 400 shots per charge with an average cell lasting for 500 charges.

Video Mode

 This device features the same movie quality as its predecessor. Filming or Video Recording can be done at 320x240, 640x480 or 1280x720 pixels, all at 30 frames per second, 720p quality being the best of the lot. An additional choice is given which applies Canon’s Color swap or Colour Accent modes for special effects. This 720p HD recording falls short of Sony HX5 which in the same price range offers Full HD video recording at 1080p. Canon has recommended the use of a Class 4 or faster card for HD movie mode, which includes affordably priced SanDisk Ultra II models.

Sensors

Sensor is the heart of any camera, and this camera Canon PowerShot SX210 HS is well endowed with a 14.1 Megapixel CCD senor with the dimensions of 1/2.3 inch and it delivers 4:3 shaped images with a maximum resolution at 4320 x 3240 pixels. . While this bigger number gives Canon and Nikon more to shout about in their marketing materials though, a higher resolution isn't necessarily preferable in practice.

Pros

14x optical zoom: longest range of rival models

14 Megapixels: joint highest resolution of peers
720p HD movies with matching 16:9 screen

Cons

Flash always pops-up even when disabled

Slow continuous shooting at full resolution
Zoom motor is audible when filming video
Widescreen monitor not ideal shape for 4:3 stills
